New rear tire?

I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier, but I can swap the rear 20" Schwalbe Big Apple for a skinnier race tire! Since my 16" ones are pretty much limited to what I have now, it might be worth giving the rear swap a try. Not sure if it would make a difference though since the front wheels set the rolling resistance limit.

As for the fronts?

Will the Schwalbe 16" tires I got from the BROL member fit the stock KMX rims?

Stock tires = 1.90"
Big Apples = 2.00" (current)
Marathon Supreme = 1.35"

The chart is giving me bad news. The narrowest tire that's recommended for my rim is 1.75". The Marathons I have are therefore way too small.
